During the course of his magnificent 114 in the recent Old Trafford Test, Inzamam-ul-Haq completed 5000 runs in Test Cricket and became only the fourth Pakistani and 74th cricketer in the world to achieve this landmark. Inzamam's crossing of the milestone made me compile a list of Pakistani batsmen who have scored 3000 or more runs in test cricket. This list, along with a list of the first Pakistani batsmen to cross 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000 and 8000 runs, is presented below:

Milestones: First Pakistan Batsman to
1000 Runs - Hanif Mohammad v West Indies at Bridge Town in
January 1958
2000 Runs - Hanif Mohammad v India at Bombay in December 1960
3000 Runs - Hanif Mohammad v Australia at Melbourne in December 1964
4000 Runs - Zaheer Abbas v India at Hyderabad, January 1983
5000 Runs - Zaheer Abbas v New Zealand at Lahore, November 1984
